I just edited all my soldiers, to give the psi level 3 and all the abilites that they can get from the beginning. I now 24 soldiers, 6 of each class, all Colonel's with full psi rank. And for genetic purity, i made them all the same, nationality
Will they all be named the same thing? And probably all look the same? lol... I do have a saved game when the ship lands... I could just keep putting people through psi training until I get a good number of them. Those mental powers are fun.
